Halifax County Public Schools will be rolling out the red carpet for students and their families at the second annual Back-2-School Expo, slated Saturday, at Halifax County High School from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The morning will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the entrance to the school at 9:45 a.m. with the program taking place at the school auditorium. William Denson, founder of “A Father Forever: If You Want Better … Do Better,” will be the motivational speaker. All schools will have a table set up in the lobby for students and families to visit.

Book bags will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis for students who attend. Entertainment will be provided by the HCHS band and cheerleaders, and the HCHS Robotics Team will be on hand to help guests interact with their award-winning robot.

Lunch will be served for all at 11:30 a.m. in the cafeteria. Informational vendors will be at the lobby to assist with using the HCPS parent portal, provide blood pressure checks, connect families with the Mentor/Role Model Program services, present demonstrations of healthy eating recipes, offer free food samples, and lots more.

The 2019 Back-2-School Expo will help prepare students and generate excitement for the new school year, which begins Wednesday, Aug. 14.
